To our friends,
Like you, we are very concerned about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in our communities. On top of our minds are the effects of the pandemic on the children and families we serve who need our support now more than ever, and the effects on our dedicated team who continue to work tirelessly to help our clients each day.
Our thanks to the many friends who have asked how to help Gemma and the youth and families we serve. We can only predict so well what we may need in the coming weeks, but here are a few things we know will support our work at this time. We appreciate anything you can contribute to help Gemma respond to the needs of those we serve, support our dedicated staff, and support our organization during these challenging times as well.
WAYS YOU CAN HELP TODAY INCLUDE:
- Make an unrestricted financial donation. These funds will give Gemma the flexibility to respond to our most pressing needs and those of the children and families we serve.
- Purchase gift cards to support Gemma and the families we serve. The following gift cards are all helpful: Acme Food Stores; CVS; Target; Walmart; ShopRite; Amazon; Wawa; Grubhub; DoorDash. Gift cards should be delivered electronically if possible (enter delivery email as [email protected]) or mailed to: Gemma Services, Attention: Development Office, 512 W. Township Line Road, Plymouth Meeting, PA 19462.
- Purchase an item from our Current Needs Wish List on Amazon that can help us respond to COVID-19 as needed. The wish list also includes fun items to engage our residential children and youth during this time.
- Donate a gift basket to be used as an appreciation gift for our hardworking, frontline Gemma team members. Baskets with snacks and treats or items to help staff members have fun and relax at home are all welcome.*
Thank you for supporting our mission and work, particularly during this unique and challenging time. If you have any questions, please contact Lynn Unipan, Chief Development Officer, via email or by calling 610-825-4440, ext. 3206.
